The Foodie Top 100 Restaurants were carefully selected by food critics: Patricia Wells (France), Gael Greene (USA), Masuhiro Yamamoto (Japan), Ruth Reichl (USA), Jonathan Gold (USA), Bruno Verjus (France), Alexander Lobrano (France), Charles Campion (United Kingdom), Vir Sanghvi (India), Aun Koh(Singapore/China) Susumu Ohta (Japan), Kundo Koyama (Japan), Glam Media’s Samir Arora (Publisher & Editor), Yuki Yamamura (Japan), with Erika Lenkert (Managing Executive Editor). Foodie’s goal was to select only the most knowledgeable and respected food critics, and create a small, transparent panel of judges.

Each critic nominated restaurants from their region, as well as their favourites from other corners of the world. Critics and editors were required to have visited their nominations recently, pay for their meals, and no one could nominate a restaurant they are professionally tied to in any way.

“Given the calibre of nominating critics, I was excited to see the final list and am not surprised to discover a diverse, well-curated selection as a result,” said UK food critic, Charles Campion.

Glam Media is also launching Top Restaurants France, Top Restaurants Japan and Top Restaurants US lists. Unique to these lists is recognition of the world’s top ten general managers and maître d’s, as well as the list of the world’s top ten sommeliers.

Glam Media launched its Foodie vertical in February 2012, and in the short time since then has become #2 among all food publishers online, reaching 19.7 million unique users a month (as measured by comScore, Feb. 2013).

With the Top 100 Guides, Glam Media is bringing social discovery of the best-curated content on recipes and restaurants online with and on the Foodie iPad app.

Happy eating.
